Learning through one's "zone of proximal development"
It's about learning to play music, but I think it's relevant to anything skilled, motor-wise, like manual handling. And I should think the cognitive evaluative zone needs to be fed simultaneously or it will fill up its hunger with nonsense.

"Here is Edward Bear coming downstairs now, bump, bump, bump, on the back of his head behind Christopher Robin. It is, as far as he knows, the only way of coming downstairs, but sometimes he feels that there is another way, if only he could stop bumping for a moment and think of it." A.A. Milne

Diane , a friend sent a similar link . Fascinating esp the studies with owls . I think this article and optimism is so relevant for re learning and promoting the idea of neuroplasticity.
Learning music is transformative and I would recommend it to anyone . The comment on your link is the usual one of not being possible to be a virtuoso --who cares, the message is that change enjoyment and developing a meaningful life is.

And so relevent to changing brains and pain. Go slowly, take care, pay attention and gently push yourself.
